IWC Schaffhausen has partnered with Warner Bros. Picture’s upcoming feature film, “Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom,” to launch the Aquatimer Perpetual Calendar Digital Date- Month, inspired by the red and blue glowing prop watches that the Swiss luxury watch manufacturer supplied for the production of the highly-anticipated feature film sequel.

This diver’s watch is presented in two versions, each limited to 25 pieces, and features imposing 49-millimeter Ceratanium® cases, black dials, and black rubber straps. One of them has red Super-LumiNova® on the dial, the hands, and the inner rotating bezel, and the other has blue. The technical features include a perpetual calendar with a digital date and month display, as well as a chronograph function. The IWC-manufactured 89802 caliber with a blackened component is visible through the sapphire crystal back.

The main functional feature of these watches is the perpetual calendar with digital displays. The date and the month are shown with the help of rotating discs in a digital format on the dial, making it particularly easy and intuitive to read. The perpetual calendar is mechanically programmed to automatically recognize the different lengths of the months and the leap years. As a result, the combination of “29” and “02” will appear only once every four years on the dial. The IWC-manufactured 89802 caliber drives the calendar complication via a single nightly switching impulse.

The movement also offers a chronograph function, which displays the stopped hours and minutes combined in a totalizer at 12 o’clock for better readability. The double pawl winding system converts movements of the oscillating mass in both directions to energy for the mainspring, efficiently building up a power reserve of 68 hours. The rotor in a technical design has been blackened in an elaborate nickel-plating process and can be admired through the transparent sapphire glass case back.
